I would be surprised if it is 4-minute timing! Maybe you will see 5-minute timing?

I have been logged in and I haven't seen any leaves after 2pm (on the 6 accounts which I have open), so my guess is yes, you need to log off and back on in order to get the leaves started again on the new timing.

So i have been thinking...(which is never really good)...maybe [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] needs to rethink the way they do fall fest. (Winterfest too) I realize that they limit how many leaves we have access to because they don't want millions of each item clogging up our accounts, But I think they go about it the wrong way! I think that there are just too many bad feeling toward [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] by the end of the week that this just can't be good for business. Since complaining just won't help...I propose we all come up with some very reasonable alternatives to the random leaf click and email them to [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate]....

This is what I will email!!!

My solution is to have a daily activity for the week or maybe even longer that is about catching leaves. Make an outdoor room where leaves float all around your pet and your job is to catch them. As you catch them they open a prize and that prize goes into your dock. It could be a timed game, see how many leaves you catch in 30 seconds or everyone gets to click on a set number get those prizes. We would all then have the same access to all the same prizes. I know that it can be done because it would be like the snow white game (remember last year?) but they would be moving instead of rocks that were still.

We'll I hope you all come up with other good alternatives.

Happy Clicking!

Reposting on a new page so people can see it without wading through the whole thread...

GUIDE TO 2010 FALLFEST, aka How the heck do I find leaves

How often do the leaves show up?

The leaves are programmed to have a chance of appearing on a timed cycle. Based on reports from various WI members, the cycle now appears to be 5 minutes from about 2pmKT to about 9:30pmKT, and 9 minutes from about 9:30pmKT to 2pmKT. ([notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] is reportedly doing this so that more leaves can be found during the period when kids are home after school finishes for the day.)

More detailed information about leaf timing can be found in this post. It conflicts with the timing I've been experiencing (e.g. 4 minutes at peak instead of 5; 8 minutes at non-peak waking time instead of 9), but is still extremely helpful, as well as predictive for a changing schedule on Saturday!

What this means is that if, for example, you log on at 3:03pmKT (during the 5-minute cycle period), you have a chance of seeing a leaf at 3:08, 3:13, 3:18, 3:23, 3:28, and so-on.

Notice that I say a CHANCE. There is no guarantee that a leaf will actually show up at each 5- or 9- minute interval. I've been tracking my login times and leaf-appearing times, and based on my records, I believe that the odds of getting a leaf at each interval are 1 in 4. This means that if you log on during the 5-minute interval period and wait around for 20 minutes (that's four cycles), you will probably see one leaf; and if you log on during the 9-minute interval period and wait around for 36 minutes (that's four cycles), you will probably see one leaf. However, you could be lucky and see two, three, or even four leaves during that time...or you could be unlucky and see none.

What happens if I'm online when the leaf timing schedule changes over?

We don't know for sure. But I personally have noticed that if I'm online during a leaf timing change, I stop seeing leaves. At least one other WI member has reported experiencing this, too. So it's possible (definitely not confirmed, but possible) that if you're online when the schedule changes, you stop seeing leaves altogether. Therefore, if you're online during a leaf timing changeover, and you stop seeing leaves, give logging out and logging back in a try, you might see an improvement.

Do I have to be anywhere specific in Webkinz World to see the leaves?

Yes. You have to be somewhere in Webkinz World where you can see your dock. No dock, no leaves.

Some WI users have claimed that they have more luck seeing leaves in specific dock-displaying spots in WW, for example, the Contact Us page on the newspaper, or Quizzy's. However, no actual study of this has been done, and the official word on the WI wiki is that it doesn't matter where in WW you are, as long as you can see your dock, the odds of seeing a leaf are the same.

However, certain dock-displaying spots in WW may make leaf-spotting and catching easier. One WI member pointed out that the newspaper's Contact Us page is mostly white (so leaves are easy to see), doesn't have a lot of animation going on (so your system will respond faster), and there's less to accidentally click on while you're trying to catch the leaf (so you run less risk of getting something else instead of the leaf).

You're full of it! I've been waiting around forever and have seen zero leaves!

Based on reports from WI members, there does appear to be a genuine problem with some people not seeing leaves, even after waiting around for a lot of intervals. One WI member reported calling [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] and was told that you will only see leaves if you are "activated" when you log in. We don't know what this means exactly, or why activation does or doesn't happen, but it appears that sometimes when you log in, you're "activated" (and will see leaves), and sometimes when you log in, you're not (and will not see leaves). The best advice to deal with this is that if you've gone through a whole bunch of interval cycles without seeing any leaves, log off and then log back on, to try and "activate" yourself. And once you see a leaf, stay logged in and keep waiting through the intervals for more to show up.

See also the question "What happens if I'm online when the leaf timing schedule changes over?" further up in this guide.

What if my WW clock gets out of sync with the actual time?

We've seen conflicting reports from WI members about this one - some say that if your WW clock gets out of sync, the leaves will stop falling, and some say that if your WW clock gets out of sync, the leaves will fall faster. So it's hard to say. My own personal experience is that when my WW clock gets out of sync it doesn't affect a darn thing, and the leaves continue to have a chance of coming every 5 or 9 minutes.

You're wrong - it's between 2pm and 9:30pm where I am and the leaves are still falling on a 9-minute cycle

Based on what I've been reading on this thread, I believe that whether the leaves come every 5 minutes or every 9 minutes is based on the KT of the account you're logged into, not on the time where you actually are. So, for example, if where you live it is 3pm Eastern Time, but you log into your Asian account, it will be 5:15amKT on the account, which means the leaf chance interval will be 9 minutes. (This calculation is based on information from this thread, which says that KT on Asian accounts is 15 hours ahead of Eastern Time.) Similarly, if you are living in Vancouver where it's Pacific Time, and it's 8pm there, I think (not sure, but I think it works like this) that if you log into an American account (which is based on Eastern Time), the KT will be 11pm, which means you'll be on a 9-minute interval instead of a 5-minute interval.

I'm seeing leaves but I can't click on them!

From various reports from multiple WI members, it does indeed seem that some people are actually unable to click on leaves. Or, they click on them, but the dreaded "Please Wait..." appears and never goes away. Obviously, this is very frustrating, and we don't know why it's happening. One WI member provided the tip that if you click in front of the leaf instead of on the leaf itself, you will be able to catch them if you were having trouble before. Another WI member pointed out that if you're in an outside room and it's raining, this slows things right down and may affect your ability to successfully click on a leaf, so if you're going to watch for leaves when you're in a room, make sure it's an inside room. An inside room with as few animated items as possible is also a good idea. So try those tips. If it still doesn't work, then I would give [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] a call, because this is obviously a technical problem for you.

Okay, I've caught lots of leaves but all I'm getting are the old prizes!

It's very clear from WI member reports that the new prizes (Lumberjack Hat, Lumberjack Boots, Woolly Galoshes, Autumn Tree Globe, Colorful Corn Display and Gourd Table Candle) are much more rare than the old prizes (Autumn Striped Sweater, Autumn Sunset Toque, Baked Butternut Squash, Decorative Cornucopia, Decorative Wheat Sheaf, Fall Festival Place Setting, Hot Apple Cider, Potted Elm Tree, and Pressed Leaf Wall Plate). The ratio I've been getting is one new prize for every four or five leaves I catch. (By contrast, if the chances of getting any prize was truly the same as getting any other prize, I should actually be getting two new prizes for every five leaves I catch.) And I haven't caught any Autumn Tree Globes.

What are the prizes, anyway?

Have you checked the Wiki?
- List of prizes
- Pictures of prizes

We're also getting reports that which prize you get is directly linked to the colour of leaf you see:

Yellow
- Autumn Sunset Toque
- Gourd Table Candle
- Potted Elm
- Pressed Leaf Wall Plate
- Woolly Galoshes

Orange
- Autumn Striped Sweater
- Baked Butternut Squash
- Fall Festival Place Setting
- Lumberjack Hat
- Colorful Corn Display

Red
- Autumn Tree Globe
- Decorative Cornucopia
- Decorative Wheat Sheaf
- Hot Apple Cider
- Lumberjack Coat

HTH!

I have a theory (could be totally wrong, but I figure it's worth mentioning) that if you're online when the leaf timing schedule changes over, your leaves stop. Try logging out and logging back in and see if you start seeing leaves again?

I am definitely on a 5 minute schedule. Everyone should log out and back in if you have not done it since 2:00KT.
